Publisher Description

A young Congressman stumbles on the powerful political underworld of 1950's D.C. in this "potent thriller" (David Baldacci) and New York Times bestseller from CNN correspondent Jake Tapper.

Charlie Marder is an unlikely Congressman. Thrust into office by his family ties after his predecessor died mysteriously, Charlie is struggling to navigate the dangerous waters of 1950s Washington, DC, alongside his young wife Margaret, a zoologist with ambitions of her own. Amid the swirl of glamorous and powerful political leaders and deal makers, a mysterious fatal car accident thrusts Charlie and Margaret into an underworld of backroom deals, secret societies, and a plot that could change the course of history. When Charlie discovers a conspiracy that reaches the highest levels of governance, he has to fight not only for his principles and his newfound political career...but for his life.

Bogged down

Got bogged down with the historical passages re congressmen and other government occurrences. Some were interesting others not. Hate skiing passages but I did. The rest was good.

Great read

Tension keeps mounting as we roller coaster through McGiver like superhero/supervillain events, all done by our duly elected politicians . Most fascinating, and informative is the history. Jake (who is like a household item around here..we never miss his shows), gives us a purview of McCarthyism..the Red Scare and how often cutthroat behind the scenes political negotiations are. Couldn’t put it down.
